everybody can see them on the iranian president. then everybody else starts walking out too. canada's guys, new zealand, costa rican. the u.n. represents from 27 countries in europe all pied-pipered out behind the americans while mahmoud ahmadinejad kept talking from the little step stool they presumably put up to the podium. when he started to say how most of the world knows 911 was an inside job by the u.s. government. a lot of times diplomacy is so subtle, international relations turn on whether you're guy's dinner at the white house is a steak dinn state dinner or technically looks like a state dinner. who because to who and how deeply. it's all these minor subtle points of protocol, these imperceptible slights. except when it's not. it was as satisfying as it was blunt. for all the drama today of walking out on little mahmoud ahmadinejad what got less coverage was something almost as blunt and almost as satisfying but without the dramatic visuals. four years ago our friends in russia said they were going to sell iran a billion dollars worth of missiles that iran said they wanted to us

there first. a team from south africa and a team from canada and they're all working to get there with different methods with a hole that will be 28 inches in diameter so they'll be able to send a capsule down and then bring the 33 miners out one at a time. but as this is going on, as you mentioned, 27 of the 33 families are at a court today and they are filing a civil lawsuit. they say that they would like to be compensated for the anguish, for those down below, as well as those on the surface, $1 million a miner. of course, they'll be suing the government, as well as the mine company here. but that mine company is in bankruptcy. so, it's not likely they'll have the assets, really, to pay out if the judge were to award something. tamron? >> kerry sanders live for us in chile, thank you very much, kerry, for that update. >>> coming up, charter schools. are they the solution to the problem? we're going to talk with the ceo of one of the successful charter schools ahead. big debate if charter schools are the answer. ♪ >>> plus, the secret behind seal's new video and song ded

europe were diverted to canada. once an airliner starts out over the pond with a point of no return, there had to be some complications. was there anything that turned out to be a problem? i know it was not simple. was theemedy to divert as many of those to canada as you could? did you turnome back? were there any glitches in that or someone got close to running out of fuel on the way across the land? >> those routes across the land in in the ocean are structured. they are required to have a certain amount of fuel in the event of emergency. they would have either gone back to europe or we have greenland, iceld, and the canadian provinces all the way down. i was not concerned about an aircraft getting to a place to land at all. i knew that our procedures in setting of the north atlantic tracks in this case provide for that contingency. >> the town of gander in newfouland, there is an interesting story on that. they hav5000 people. 10,000 people landed that day on 9/11.
